Tours must be scheduled at least three (3) weeks in advance.
Please be aware that leaving a voicemail or sending an email does not represent a confirmed reservation. A confirmation letter from the tour reservations office is required as verification of your group’s reservation.
- Due to the capacity of the Institute’s exhibit floor, if you wish to bring a whole grade level with more than seventy five (75) students, we ask that you request a second day and time to bring the rest of the group.
- Any changes to a reservation (including cancellation or modification) must be made at least three (3) business days prior to the scheduled visit.
Admission to ITC is by donation. Suggested donation is $12. ITC accepts cash via in-person donation stations. We also accept credit cards, including Discover, MasterCard and Visa via an online donation platform. Look for donation stations with QR codes to donate at the museum entrance. You may also donate online at giving.utsa.edu/itc.
We are only able to accommodate class sizes of up to 75 students at this moment and time.
For the safety of students and the enjoyment of other guests, the Institute requires that student groups be accompanied at all times by an appropriate number of adult teachers or chaperones. Chaperones are expected to ensure that students behave appropriately and are mindful of other guests visiting the museum.
Pre-K & Kindergarten (Children 6 and Under)
A chaperone-to-student ratio of 1:5 is required for Pre-K through Kindergarten classes. For every five (5) students, there should be one adult actively monitoring the group.
Grades 1–12 (Children 6 and Up)
A chaperone-to-student ratio of 1:10 is required for grade levels 1 through 12. For every ten (10) students, there should be one adult actively monitoring the group.
Groups may reserve outdoor picnic areas at the museum, at no charge. As space is limited, these spaces must be reserved in advance through the reservationist. Indoor lunch facilities are not available.
